So, I decided to finally get around to fully orchestrating my piece for concert band, "Baron von Munchausen" -- string section and all. I was surprised that it took only a few hours of my day today. Most of the work was simply rephrasing the saxophone section as a string section, and adding some new string parts as well. The wind instruments definitely still take center stage, though. I also made some minor tweaks to the harp part and other instruments. It's a fun, adventuresome piece -- hopefully in the spirit of the Baron himself -- and I hope you'll enjoy it. I'd certainly appreciate hearing whatever thoughts pop into your head as you listen. I've attached the original program notes from 2017 along with the updated score. Thanks as always, YC.
